    I worked at PAREXEL

    Pros

    Excellent benefits (health specifically) and managers respect work/life balance Manager also worked with me to schedule long and short vacations around current work load. Salary is competitive. The RTP office is super causal (you can wear jeans every day if you prefer).

    Cons

    Some coworkers took ad stage of the laid-back dress code and dressed inappropriately/unprofessionally
    Training for specific job roles needs serious improvement
    Dental plan is Not good
    Office space in RTP is old and cramped
    They do not give raises very often (not bc the company isnt making money)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight for the good competent workers to get promotion and raises. No use loosing good employees Bc of low salary no promotion to replace them a substandard replacement
    Get the new SOPs in order/finalized so people know their roles and responsiblities and articulate this info to staff.

    The industry training was exceptional, but line management's expectations of hours worked per week was unreasonable.

    Pros

    This is the Cadillac of the industry in terms of training. You will learn a lot and learn it the right way. The facility is very nice and fellow employees are generally nice people and fun to work with.

    Cons

    I found it extremely stressful in terms of work life balance. The number of hours per week that line management expected an employee to work was unreasonable, especially for salaried employees. It was not at all unusual to be working 12 hour days and then they still wanted more. Employees who chose to work their standard 40 hours were harrassed by line management and made to feel like they would lose their job. It was very stressful from that perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff a project appropriately to give employees a better work life balance. Contractors may love the overtime because they are earning time and a half, but salaried employees are losing out. Be thankful for the overtime an employee freely gives and don't pressure the employee for more.
